What You Need to Know About Genomics
This podcast was orignally published by Cure Today by Kristie L. Kahl on June 6, 2019.
In this week’s episode, we spoke with a patient and his doctor about genomic testing and how it can change treatment outcomes for patients with cancer.
Cancer is no longer the once thought “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to treatment, especially because genomic testing plays such a crucial role for certain patients.
This week, we spoke with Bryce, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2014 and whose cancer journey was changed once he discovered what genomic testing could do for his treatment options. In addition, Dr. Marcia Brose, from the University of Pennsylvania, weighs in on what patients should know about genomic cancer testing.
